  1. Good question, I have no idea. It seems fairly open to interpretation to me. We had a discussion about this, I would say that if it was a new boat then the resale probably would have been compromised however it was an older J111 so I would doubt there would be any effect to resale value. I would say that they didn't go backwards at all, what the video doesn't show and they never show very well are some pretty sharp waves. I think they came off the back of a sharp wave and what looks like them shooting backwards is actually just what any boat of this size would do when slammed
  2. There is an interpretation on RRS 44.1 which was requested by San Diego Yacht Club, in this there are the following questions. Questions to consider may include: (1) Did the damage put the safety of the crew at risk? In my opinion, no. (2) Did the damage include a hole in the boat which compromised the integrity of the hull? In my opinion, no. While there was a hole which let water in it was insignificant enough that Shamrock managed to finish that race and the next race without making any actions to fix it, they then fixed it overnight with tape. While there was a hole, whet
  3. Possibly, it's hard to know. They came up pretty hard and quick, at the time the bear away was the best option. We only hit them about a foot forward of the transom so we almost made it, almost doesn't quite cut it though when it comes to avoiding boats.
  4. Just my two bobs, I was the bowman on Joust for this. As you've all seen, Shamrock had a shocker of a drop and we had a fairly good one. We didn't notice how bad their drop was going, as we were coming up we were looking pretty good to just follow them around the bottom mark. We eventually noticed that they had slowed and almost stopped in front of us, you can see the point where Rod tries to bear away but it was just too late in the end, from my vantage on the bow I can confirm that the skipper of Shamrock definitely wasn't off his feet until we hit them, that was all us. Shamrock con
  5. Didn't look too bad, just stick the pointy bit back on and stay calm... Feel free to expand on what exactly happened with the dolls nose. I didn't notice that they broke anything.
  6. they are doing a sanya as far as I know
  7. Well at least she's still afloat! Another from the same builder allegedly suffering what has been described as significant delam, taking water (again) just outside the heads on her way to Syd a couple of days ago. Rushed back to SYC and rapidly hauled out, it appears her program is in disarray. That's a real shame for RD. Thats a shame for SR, there was a similar delamination issue in Sydney last December before the Hobart race? Yes, Same deal. I had a look yesterday, there is a patch about 0.5m x 0.5m about one meter back from the bow just off on the port side of the centrelin
  8. yea, he outed himself in a couple of other threads What Simon is this... I'm trying to work it out... It's too bloody early for this.
  9. yacht - are you able to cite the offence provision? BTW - the correct citation for the Act would be the Commonwealth Navigation Act 1912. To incorrectly cite the Act makes me think you are probably wrong also about the offence, but I'm happy to be proved wrong. Yes was told several times by the people at Pains Wessex , now chemring, and during several SSSC. Could well be the Com Nav act 1912.I did not look it up. I am not saying do not let off expired flares,well yes I am, but do not advertise that you are going to do so. The fact that this flare let off has been
  10. You can get the full story of the rescue on the ORCV website. My understanding of events as I saw/heard them Liferaft was washed overboard earlier in the race. All 6 beacons went off at once and were all in the same place. The waterpolice, coastguard and the heli were all put into operation and trybooking.com was called in as well. They were able to give trybooking.com the locations of the sailors every couple of minutes to guide them in, when they got there the heli was above the sailors so trybooking.com could locate them easier. trybooking.com arrived in Port Fairy at about 8am
  11. It was horrible out there, bloody scary. Winds were easily 60kts and reaching 70+ at times. The waves were vertical and we were struggling to get up them with motor flat out and storm jib.
  12. I dunno... Pogo structures seem to have managed fine with it... Pogo 30 (only concept right now) Pogo 10,50 (built) Pogo 12,50 (built) and now the Pogo 50 (under development) I'n not completely sure on this but I think the keel on the Seascape 27 could be rope and pulley to lift it up meaning that if you hit ground it wont be pushing against a ram to swing up. This boat isnt like a 3.9 metre beam "sometimes trailable with special permit and always launch in protected conditions with the club crane type of boat." Its designed to be a street legal towable with the family 4wd,

  14. Not a bloody thing, but I thought the fenders being left out for so long was worthy of being put on SA
  15. As seen yesterday a good ten minutes after they headed out from their pen.
